K&N Powersports Oil Filter - KN-204-1
Customer Product Reviews
Can't always remove easily
Ive used about 5 or 6 of these filters now for my ER6 over the last 3 years. The filter it self is very good, never any problems doing its job. Fixing it on is really easy by hand and then just a little quater/half turn with a wrench, no problem. The problem is that the last 2 times I have had to resort to hammering a screwdriver through the filter to remove them because the nut rounded. Maybe I'm tightening it too much but the filter is also completely round too so there is nothing to grip other than the nut.
K&N powersports Oil Filter
Great Oil Filters never use anything else. With the nut on the end it makes it easy to fit and remove the filter from the bike. I've been using these filters on all of my Bikes for over 15 years now. Fantastic product never failed.
Where the oil filter is positioned on my SuperTenere, it's constantly getting crud thrown up from the front wheel. This has caused the filter to stick to the engine casing, this is despite being liberally lubricated on installation. The ability to get a spanner or socket onto it has proved really useful many times in the past.
Always an excellent product from Sportsbikeshop. K&N filter quality proven judging the colour of the engine oil after 12 months use. Easy removal & installation even with failings in place thanks to the sturdy nut for undoing and re-fitting.
Hassle Free Removal
Seemed to thread on easier than other filters I have used. Internals looked good quality to me. Of course the real benefit to this filter will be next year when it comes to the easy removal with the nut. For you racing types It also has the small hole for wire strip securing. Great filter, usual no fuss quick delivery.
